. there are so many ways to evade that. you had that for ten years when dianne feinstein passed that ban in '94, it was on the books. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i know everyone -- this town wants to argue about gun control. i don't think it's what will work. what will work is this, i'll tell you this -- >> this is a matter of logic. anybody watching this is going to say i just heard mr. lapierre say the standard is we should try anything that might reduce the violence and you're telling me it's not a matter of common sense that you if you don't have an ability to shoot off 30 rounds without reloading that just possibly you could reduce the loss of life, that adam lanza may not have been able to shoot as many kids if he didn't have as much ammunition? >> i don't buy your argument. there are so many different ways he could done it, endless amount of ways a monster -- >> a federal judge wrote in the los angeles times "bystanders got to tucson shooter jared loughner and subdued him only after he emptied one 31-round magazine and was trying to load a
. >> is it the only thing? >> gun control, you could ban all dianne feinstein, do whatever she wants to with magazines, it's not going to make any kid safer. we got to get to the real problem, the real causes and tease what the nra is trying to do. i have peel all over the country calling me and saying, wayne, i went to bed safer last night because i have a firearm. don't let the media try to make this a gun issue. >> that's argument, it not fact. >> it is fact. >> a feeling is not fact. a feeling is a sense of reassurance, that's not what you're presenting. let's talk more specifically about what you're talking about, armed guards in school. there are successful examples. fairfax county, virginia has armed officers. there are examples where it hasn't worked. the columbine tragedy, it doesn't stop the tragedy. >> there were armed guards there and they didn't go in. they were under orders that if something happened they were to call the police for backup. >> they exchanged fires with the shooters. >> they are waited for the swat team to show up and the swat team sat outside and tried to figure out what

. will that be enough to push the political landscape. senator dianne feinstein of course, democrat of california, very powerful within the democratic party. and the senate. she says she is going to introduce legislation when the congress comes back in january. on controlling the sale of assault weapons again. big question, will that ban on the sale of assault weapons be reinstated. it's all a question of how much political muscle is behind each side. and how much mr. la pierre may, may have damaged the nra's case. by virtue of how that friday press conference went over. miguel? >> barbara starr, thank you very much in washington. >>> and now, to the fiscal cliff. and we are just about to go over the edge. congress has left for the holidays. if they don't get a deal done soon, tax increases and budget cuts will hit after the first of the year. earlier, republican congressman, steve la tourette said the president has been too focused on tax cuts for the rich. but he did leave the door open a little. >> i'm okay, you president, you can tax the rich people. but come up with some spending cuts, we're borro
to answering your questions next week. >> after the nra briefing, senators dianne feinstein and richard blumenthal spoke to reporters. >> there have been a lot of lawmakers like yourself -- is that disappointing the have not come forward? >> let me go back to 94. it was hard. the chairman of the judiciary and the house was defeated and the speaker was defeated. the nra went out to target people who voted for the assault weapons legislation. they were critical of it, but they were targeting and threatening and carried these winds -- carried these threats out. that fear of intimidation has carried on to today. i come from the biggest state in the union, a state where rim in sync. it takes a lot of courage for a senator from about the state at a small state -- california is bigger than the 21 states and the district of columbia combined. it takes a tremendous courage and backbone for people to stand up. leaders lead. we don't follow. we have had so much since the massive shooting at the texas bell power -- bell tower, along with the increased technological killing power of weapons in the u
, bob, is that when you look at the problem-- let's say we pass diann dianne feinstein's bill, how would that stop the next school shooting? it wouldn't. because it doesn't take guns off the street, and if you did, you couldn't. so that doesn't solve the problem. >> schieffer: but doesn't it make it more difficult? mr. keene-- >> it doesn't-- >> schieffer: if a man had talked about that school in connecticut with a baseball bat, he might have given a couple of people a concussion, but all those children would not be dead. >> well, you know, the fact that something is misused, whether it's a baseball bat or the mass killing in a chinese school with an axe and a knife, doesn't mean that you ban baseball bats, axes and knives or guns. >> schieffer: nobody is saying-- >> it means suprotect the innocent on one exphawnd try to keep weapons out of the hands of those who are likely to commit such crimes. one of the problems and this is reflected in public attitudes is what's wrong with our mental health system? because a lot of these people are not even-- are not even-- when they've been seen as
't worked. dianne feinstein had her ban and columbine occurred. >> a moment ago you were talking about guns in school, and you said something that made me think that that's something you would agree w.where do you stand on that? >> i don't agree with it. i think the republicans talk about it now. they are going to use that as a way to get around the issue, and the issue is high capacity magazines, and -- and assault weapons. i think david gregory did a magnificent job with the vice president of the nra this morning, and when he says -- he said that he doesn't think the magazine issue has anything to do with it, well, it does. lanza got the guns that his mother had in the house, and he would have taken whatever guns she, and if he had a gun without a high capacity magazine that couldn't shoot more than ten shots, that's all the shots he would have gotten off. he didn't go to the stove and pick his arsenal. he took what his mother gave him. if you had less of those weapons around you'd have more children alive. no matter what mr. lapierre said some of those children died because of the magazi
best recommendations how to stop these mass shootings. this past week democrat senator dianne feinstein told our piers morgan exactly what she wants. >> this is the straw that breaks the camel's back. people have to respond. they have to understand that the rights for many to remain safe are more important than any right you may think you have to have a military-style assault weapon. >> okay. so you heard her. so tom, you've been a cop. not just a gun owner. you own a gun store. so this goes beyond that for you. what's your reaction to the senator's words? >> well, i don't think that the assault weapons ban or propose the assault weapon ban is going to solve or prevent crimes like this from happening. >> why? why not? >> why's that? because what -- what's going to happen is, people like these shooters in aurora, colorado, and virginia tech, here in connecticut, these were mentally disturbed people. mentally unstable people, who slipped through the cracks. whose family, whose mental health care professionals, didn't take the steps to have them, or petition the court to have them adjudica
democrat senator dianne feinstein told our piers morgan exactly what she wants. >> this is the straw that breaks the camel's back. people have to respond. 23 they have to understand that the rights for many to remain safe are are month important than any right you may think you have to have a military-style assault weapon. >> okay. so you heard her. sir tom, you've been a top. yot just a gun owner. you own a gun store. so this goes beyond that for you. what's your reaction to the senator's words? >> well, i don't think that the assault weapons ban or propose the assault weapon ban is going to solve or prevent crimes like this from happening. >> why? why not? >> why's that? because what -- what's going to happen is, people like these shooters in aurora, colorado, and virginia tech, here in connecticut, these were mentally disturbed people. mentally unstable people, who slipped through the cracks. whose family, whose mental health care professionals, didn't take the steps to have them, or petition the court to have them adjudicated so they couldn't possess and have a firearm and it's n

made it very difficult, of course, for senators based there to do their work. so senator dianne feinstein's staff joined in my offices in the russell building. my chief of staff at the time gave them full access. one of senator feinstein's staff members commented on that. "a republican office giving democrats free rein?" but my chief of staff just said, they had full access because we trusted them. senator feinstein and i have teamed up to pass important legislation. the hutchison-feinstein overseas basing commission that studied the training capabilities and costs ofverseas military bases to determine their value compared to american bases. this resulted in consolidation and closures that brought thousands of troops back to the united states where training and rapid deployment were superior. we passed the feinstein-hutchison breast cancer stamp bill. through voluntary purchase it has raised $72 million for breast cancer research. that was senator feinstein's idea. and senator feinstein and i took the amber ale for abducted children nationwide, which has accounted for rescuing d
